SUPERIOR PROTECTION FOR DOGS AND CATS
Should every pet be vaccinated? We’d certainly recommend it. When you walk into your house after a day at work, do you consider how many diseases might have hitched a ride on your shoes, hands, or clothes? Staying indoors does not guarantee safety for our animal companions, and both dogs and cats can be at risk for infection.
VETERINARIAN RECOMMENDED VACCINES
Vaccinations are crucial to ensuring your pet–and you–are protected. We make vaccination decisions based on the latest science and your pet’s risk profile to best ensure we are vaccinating enough. Springs Veterinary Care also offers vaccines specific to threats in the Dripping Springs, Texas, area in addition to needed core vaccines.
Our commonly recommend vaccines for dogs and cats are:
- DHPP (distemper/hepatitis/parainfluenza/parvo)
- Leptospirosis (recommended based on risk)
- Influenza (recommended based on risk)
- Feline distemper
- Feline Leukemia
(kittens and at-risk cats)
Are Vaccines Safe for My Pet?
Vaccines are safe for dogs and cats. If a reaction in your pet does occur, it is usually mild. After vaccinations, some pets may feel sleepy, especially if it is their first set. However, this should not last more than 24 hours. Much like people, pets may also feel sore at the site of their injection, but this is also temporary. Contact us if you are concerned about how your pet may respond to their immunizations.
WE CUSTOMIZE YOUR PET'S VACCINES TO THEIR AGE AND UNIQUE NEEDS
Not all pets need every vaccine that we offer, so we vaccinate in moderation at Springs Veterinary Care. We will provide an immunization schedule that's tailored to your pet's needs and will discuss any concerns you may have.
